Farah Jabeen and M. Anis-ul-Haque from Quaid-i-Azam University and Muhammed Naveed Riaz from University of Sargodha composed a research study on the effect of different parenting styles on children’s behavior and self control. They conducted two questionnaires and gave them to students ages twelve to fifteen in a group study at a school after making them aware of the research project. The questionnaires asked questions about the students’ home life, and the type of parenting they received. The three types of parenting considered in this study were authoritative, which was equally high “warmth and responsiveness”, authoritarian, which was low warmth and high responsiveness, and permissive, which was high warmth and low responsiveness. The study indicated that authoritative parenting styles, both maternal and paternal, resulted in high control of emotions, goal setting, and capability to learn. It also indicated that maternal and paternal permissive parenting styles resulted in low control of emotions, bossy, immature, and impulsive behavior, and overall lower capability of learning. Authoritarian parenting styles were found insignificant.

In purpose of this article is to bring attention to UNICEF wanting to end female genital mutilation. Female genital mutilation is a ritual of cutting girls’ genitals. This ritual is practice by some African, Middle Eastern and Asian communities (BBC New Africa, 2013). One of the main points and certainly needed when trying to understand these communities is the reason behind the ritual. These communities practice FGM with the belief that it protects women’s virginity and woman marriageable (BBC New Africa, 2013).

Condom use is a sensitive subject for a number of people, and tends to have a stigma attached that deems bringing up condom use “bad” or “awkward”. Xiao Wang from the Department of Communication at RIT did research by means of surveys and questionnaires about the which students in a large study of college students that use condoms and what aids their decision about whether or not to use condoms. The reasons that students in the study choose to use or not use condoms include: attitude functions, which help make decisions about actions, the beliefs about those actions and the consequences that come with them, and if the actions benefit themselves or others; self-efficacy, which is the belief that they are actually able to perform the act of using a condom; anticipated emotions, whether they will feel satisfaction or regret after sexual behaviors and possible condom use; and relationship status, whether they were in a long term monogamous relationship or not.

(Be Healthy at Every Size, 2013) by Gina Roberts-Grey is a magazine article that explores the correlation between health and weight. The multi system question that she asks is: Does a woman have to be a certain weight in order to be healthy? In her study, she asked five women with varying ages and occupations to share their results based on the Johnson & Johnson Digital Scorecard app. Based on the app, on a scale from 0-100, the closer the number is to 100, the better the overall health of a person. She concluded that some of the bigger women that had nutritious diets and stayed active were still healthy regardless of their weight. I believe that the purpose of this study was to prove that it is okay for a woman to be overweight, as long as she lives a healthy lifestyle.

This article grabbed my attention because women's sexual rights are a new, controversial, and important topic that may not be given the amount of attention that it needs. This event is called the "SlutWalk". Women of different ages and dressed in all different ways walk to send the message that just because because they may be dressed provocatively, that does not make them an easy target for rape and it certainly does not justify taking sexual advantage of a female. The point of the walk is to say that no matter who the woman is, what they are wearing, whether they are intoxicated or sober, no matter where they are, sexual harassment is never okay or acceptable.
